On Saturday night, The Aussie and I went in to the city to see Macquarie Visions as part of the Vivid Sydney festival. The historic buildings of Macquarie Street provided the backdrop for a magnificent light show.
We started our walk at St. Mary’s Cathedral and were greeted by the most beautiful images.
The light show was a tribute to Governor Lachlan Macquarie (1810-1821), his wife Elizabeth, and the many public works they accomplished during his 11 year term.
From the cathedral, we walked through Hyde Park over to the entrance to Macquarie Street and found this blue arch.
As we walked down Macquarie Street, each historic building offered a new feast for our eyes.
But, St. Mary’s Cathedral was our favorite. It was pretty cold out, and this vision of the cathedral summed up how it felt outside.
This festival has gotten some bad press for low attendance, but there were plenty of people taking the walk. I thought it was fantastic, but I would have preferred attending this festival in the warmer months. And, despite the cold, it was fun to use some of the techniques for night photography I learned in the Chris Bray class to capture these shots.
